We begin at 8:00 AM at Hotel Congress, and we play for twelve hours, and then, at 8:00 PM, we march in grand style, still playing, across the street to Maynards Market for the final four-hour stretch and celebration. That’s a sixteen-hour Satie marathon to benefit the ACLU of Arizona!

If you are a MUSICIAN, you’re welcome to sign up for a spot in the orchestra! Just sign up to play the piece as many times as you possibly can!

If you are a SUPPORTER, you’ll sign up to sponsor a musician to play the piece as many times as they can. It’s like a charity walk-a-thon, but with MUSIC instead of MILES.

Every dime raised goes to benefit the ACLU of Arizona!

Please go to to get involved in this historic performance for a worthy cause!

    Well done Chamberlab. 36 plus musicians volunteered their time to play Satie’s “Vexations” 840 times to finish by midnight at Maynard’s Kitchen. Champagne and a celebration followed. I dropped by twice at high noon and 8 p.m. to witness this marathon of music. Various musicians were playing at those times on keyboard, bass, guitar, bassoon, trumpet, flute whistle, mandolin, cello. Wow. $9500 raised for the ACLU of Arizona.
